Red rover, Roll over!

Banks is rolling over. This morning I went to get him out of his crib and he was on his back. I was quite shocked, as I was not aware that he was even thinking of rolling. Wow Banks! It has been a great couple of days for learning here at the Tracy household. Grandpa thinks his grandkids are a bunch of geniuses. What can I say? The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

The Count

Benson is playing with playdough right now. A minute ago we rolled the playdough into balls and then I asked Benson if he could count the balls. He put two inside of the container and said, "One, two in there!" Yaaaaay! We have been trying to get him to associate numbers with actual objects and this morning is the first time he has put the two together. I am so excited.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Last night I asked Benson some "favorites" questions. Here is what he said:
"What is your favorite color?" -"Orange. NO Purple!"
"What is your favorite food?" - "Corn! (I think that's from the Hastings video) Then he paused and said, "Ice cream."
Ben asked, "Who is your favorite parent?" -"Mommy."
"What do you like to do best... swim, play at the park, or play at your friend Justice's house?" -"Play at Justice's house."

I'm still amazed that he's figured out what favorite means.

The Saga Begins (again)

We have the internet now (for at least a little while) so I thought I'd start blogging again. It has been fun reading everyone's blogs and catching up on your lives. We are all so excited for our little reunion in just over a month! Ben keeps saying I'm going to fall in love with Michigan and never want to leave. I hope so. See you all soon.
